The Biological Stain Commission has performed a stability study on dye
powders and found that dye powders kept in closed containers stained well
after over 30 years of storage. Solutions of course are a different story.

Subject: [Histonet] Expired Stains
Hi Everyone, I was wondering if anyone knows how JCAHO views expired
Special Stains. I have some expired Special Stains. We do low volume,
trying to use up some stains before they expire can be difficult. I can
still get the stains to work and the Pathologists like them. Should I throw
them away and order new? As you know the stains can be costly.
Thanks for your input,
